Training Options - Who Should Attend. The CAMS framework consists of an approach for guided suicide-focused risk assessment and ongoing psychosocial intervention. It is intended to be used by mental and behavioral health practitioners (e.g., psychologists, counselors, social workers) and students in those disciplines practicing under supervision, and mental health medical providers who see clients for regular mental health treatment sessions. For these practitioners, the training is offered in three parts (see Training Flyer for details).
